19TH ANNUAL GOLD STAR GALA

THEN CAME TOMORROW! PRESENTED BY M&T BANK

“M&T has been supporting this event for 12 years and we have seen the impact MCC has on our community for all 12 years of our investment.”—Daniel J. Burns, president, Rochester Region, M&T Bank

In April 2017, the MCC Foundation’s 19th Annual Gold Star Gala, Then Came Tomorrow! presented by M&T Bank, raised more than $255,000 (net) for student success and program excellence at MCC. Guests were transported back in time to the Hollywood heyday of 1949 to attend a fantastically fictional movie premiere of Then Came Tomorrow!  

Lead underwriters included M&T Bank, Dixon Schwabl, CMI Communications, Cornell’s Jewelers, the DiMarco Group and the Louis S. & Molly B. Wolk Foundation. The event surpassed its goal thanks to the generous supporters and volunteers, including Honorary Chairs Dolores and Brad Kruchten, as well as Committee Chairs Denise and Dan Burns. Celebrity auctioneer Doug Emblidge (13WHAM) prompted guests to establish 40 scholarships during the event!
